Update: While I didn't get everything on my to-do list knocked off, I still made a ton of progress, and I've learned all the basics I need to continue on. The GUI won't be an issue from now on & the file structures / tools are being tackled as soon as I have the time for them c:
Jams are awesome because they give me an excuse to give certain to-do lists priority when I normally wouldn't, but long ones like this are a bit rough for that haha. Definitely puttered out near the end there (for good reasons but still). Congrats to everyone who made an attempt & double-congrats to those who submitted!
